ALBANY, N.Y. -- A regional jet has skidded into a snow bank at an upstate New York airport and become stuck, temporarily stranding passengers.

A spokesman for the Albany County Airport Authority says no injuries have been reported.

The United Airlines flight was leaving the gate in Albany en route to Chicago on Saturday when it slid off a paved roadway. It had been snowing lightly all day.

The 65 passengers and crew members were put on a bus and sent back to the airport.

Airport authority spokesman Doug Myers says the accident didn't cause any other airport delays. The plane was removed from the snow bank and will be inspected for any problems.

Myers says the airline will determine what happened with the jet.
